. for the first time, foreign policy is now part of this discussion that we're having. i've been traveling all over. this tragedy turned into a deboch expel massive cover-up or massive incompetence in libya is having an effect on the voter because of their view of the commander in chief. and it is now the worst cover-up or incompetence that i have ever observed in my life. >> schieffer: let me get to that in a second. let me just ask you what you said there. are you saying the president, should he come off the campaign trial now and devote himself to directing efforts and that sort of thing? >> i'm sure he will. at least for a period of time i'm sure that the president will. we all remember new orleans. >> schieffer: what about-- what about what you just said about libya? are you saying now that this was a deliberate cover-up coming out of the libya, that in fact this was not what the administration said it was, but something else entirely, and that, i guess, if it was a cover-up, are you saying they did it for political reasons? >> i don't know if it's either cover-up or gross-- the worst kin
campaign promise of a humble foreign policy. that phrase became a bit of a punchline, given the way that the actual events of the bush presidency unfolded. but the idea of humility, i think, is the central to a secured american conservativism. novice and not just in foreign policy, but really and everything else. conservatism is, to my mind, based on two central insights. one is the idea that is more of a temperament than an ideology. the predisposition that you're not going to tear something down until you first understand why it is built. and you don't begin with the presumption that everything that has happened before you in the past, even if it may look arbitrary to you or may not immediately make intuitive sense to you, it doesn't mean that those practices were really random or arbitrary. there may have been good reasons for them. it is worth studying those reasons before you enter a report. secondly, american conservatism is dedicated to conserving a political condition tradition. this is where traditions of all kind become complicated. american conservatism is, in many respec
to implement policies as far as foreign policy, health care, jobs. host: we will get a response from barbara comstock, who is one of the chairs of the romney for virginia campaign. guest: i would just quote joe biden -- the middle class has years. they have been buried because this president's economic policies failed. the president said when he came would get unemployment wellhe said that he was going to cut the debt that was $10 trillion in half, down to $5 trillion. now it is $16 children. he failed by a factor of three times what he said he was going to do. his health care bill, a huge government monstrosity, not level, would end up costing us $2,500 more in premiums when he that it would be $2,500 less. the president himself said if he did not get this done, if he did not turn this economy around in three years it would be a one-term proposition. why we are looking to mitt romney -- i was talking before about how romney cut the budget in massachusetts. on a bipartisan basis with 87% legislature and that the same time he cut taxes 19 times. do get -- to get massachusetts democrats to cut
security and foreign affairs. mitt romney, you saw him in the debate on the topic of foreign policy. most of his ideas he was a neat, too, with respect to the president. -- me, too. host: lets' hear from our republican voters in new hampshire. -- let's. caller: it is amazing that are all on the puck for president obama. you want to watch a balanced news station, go to fox news. that is the truth, it really is. president george bush would have been crucified if this went down in libya. for american soldiers, people that were killed. they were just sitting around. same situation. mitt romney does have a plan. he is a businessman. obama has never been run a lemonade stand. let's be honest. guest: with respect to benghazi the president is insisting on getting to the bottom. he has also said we will find those responsible and nature -- make sure they are held responsible. that is what we expect from are responsible president. with respect to the other comments, obviously with respect to fox news, i do not watch fox news, so i cannot really comment on fox other than to say it might be a good id
the foreign policy debate. like many of your viewers, we were surprised when governor romney some -- presented that as the first question in that debate. we made a note of the day after that debate. host: do you think this issue is one that is in the top five for voters in colorado? guest: no. for voters who are opposed to the obama administration, it makes their top five, but the top five for most people, three out of those spots are the economy, the economy, the economy. after that is energy and if you look for democrats, social issues. health care being among them. host: thanks for your time. >> a look at efforts of the romney campaign to win in colorado. president obama has been to this state, he carried by a large number. how are republicans responding? >> i think since mid-september, particularly since the first debate, republicans are very energized right now. i think getting out and responding, you're seeing record visits by the republican candidate, mitt romney as well as his running mate, paul ryan. >> describe the ground game for republicans and what you need to have in place in ord
co-hosts for not devolving into these crazy connections unlike someone i won't name at foreign policy magazine. a magazine, i love. i'm a subscriber, but the story today, meet sandy, the game changer, first of all dock a point for that trite expression. two, to begin with sandy will do more to draw attention to issues of climate change than all the candidates running for every office in the united states during this election cycle have done. i think that's blowing this a bit out of proportion to think that, a, this is going to bring us to a huge conversation about climate change and that that conversation would then really affect the election on tuesday. just seems silly. i think people are going to keep their eye on the ball here. >> back to that breaking news out of midtown manhattan. this is video just in. the view from the ground of that partial crane collapse. the area around it is being evacuated. it happened at a 90-story building under construction at 57th street near carnegie hall. city officials say there are no plans right now to try to remove the collapsed crane because th
foreign policy under the romney administration. one woman said her brother's in the military. concerned about what that might mean for him. and one independent voter who's voting for president obama saying that she just doesn't believe mitt romney. and she isn't sure where his core is at. this has been a tensely fought state. the polls are really tight, and trending toward mitt romney. >> i want to talk more about the early voting. because there's been a lot of focus on early voting. president obama became the first president to vote early this week. michelle obama voted early. how is hurricane sandy affecting the plan for early voting? >> reporter: that's a great question, victor. it's very important. late last night the state put out two counties, right along the coastal region of the outer banks, would be closed today for early voting. however, early voting stations in the rest of the state will be open today. so already you're seeing an abundance of caution, expecting around 20 to 30-mile-an-hour winds. there will be early voting stations shut down in the coastal areas. the rest of
. it is a tand down foreign policy where it is appease we don't want terously feathers and we have dead americans. >> brian: your contact list is full of people who serve. what is the reaction? >> why didn't we use the assets availablitous. spector gun ships stationed 400 miles away in italy that could provide help. and operators on the roof and using lazers to identify where the mortar teem and drones watching the entire thing to develop. technology was there to cut through the war and act. it is pier one operators who could have dealt with complex situation. go after the mortar teem and secure the. act, act. >> brian: captain, thank you so employ. senator mccane made head liance is worse on than watergate. no one died in watergate. the president blaming george bush for the economy. the numbers tell a different store store then donald trump made the president an offer he couldn't refuse. donald trump picks up the phone when we call him in the top of the hour. >> i know some people are nervous about the storm about to hit the coast and our thoughts and prayers are with the people who finds themse
debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate was about being the commander in chief and being able to lead, and i think that's what we'll see president obama try to portrait over the next 48 hours, and i think governor romney is going to try to do that as well. >> all right. we'll be watching closely. thank you, mark. good to see you. >>> live pictures from atlantic city, new jersey, where hurricane sandy is pounding the coast. the eye of the storm expected to make landfall there between 8:00 and midnight eastern tonight. as we mentioned, president obama, he is cancelling campaign events to stand by those being hit by this beast of a storm. >> my message to the governors as well as to the mayors is anything they need, we will be there. >> we'll hear the president live later in the hour about 20 minutes or so is when he is scheduled to speak from the white house. and some difficult ones. but, through it all, we've persevered, supporting some of the biggest ideas in modern history. so why should our anniversary matter to you? because for 200 years, we've been
: sure. >> he also made an attempt at the same type of undecided voters. he tried to use foreign policy as his issue. did not work as well. his is more of an attack on mitt romney. let's take a look. >> i'm barak obama and i approve this message. >> wreckless, amateurish. that's when news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, the "new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> so negative. so negative. that's not what voters want to hear. the amazing thin is that barak obama attacks mitt romney on of all things, libya? the obama campaign has been the most negative campaign over the last three weeks of any campaign in modern history. compare and contrast that with 2008 when he was the most positive. it's one of the reasons why his favorability ratings have go
romney's foreign policy and i think it's spore addic that really matters. i see this as an opportunity for the romney campaign to try to distract from what is a very serious endorcement from general powell. >> let's get to another topic here, karen. an article in the "washington post." it's a new one that argues there is a high likelihood president obama could win the electoral vote but not the popular vote, which would be a first for an incumbent. could we survive the hyperpartisanship that that scenario would likely cause? >> i don't know, alex. i mean, i really hope that doesn't happen for so many reasons. i think it would be terrible for the country for so many reasons. we've already become so partisan. i'm actually have to tell you they was skeptical of some of the modelling that we've seen going on. i think a lot of the polls and a lot of the modelling has underestimated the number of latinos and african-american voters. we have 8 million more latino voters, for example, voting in 2012 than we did in 2008. most of the polling models i've seen don't account for those kinds of demo
obama is, you know, he's the obviously the first and only black president he's policy an outsider in other really significant ways. he has a unusual name. he was largely grew up in foreign country. he, you know, he worked adds a community organizer with very poor people in a housing project until the south side of chicago. these are things that are extremely suspicious to lots of people in our country. and instead of talking about it doctor directly they use the other terms to code him to describe him as outer calling him a socialist. calling him a communist. these things that manifestly have nothing do with who he is. interest thing about barack obama, if you read his awe disty of hope, his memoir, if you look at the great speech the greatest moment it's about conciliation. this is what how he sees himself. this is an he did want to be a great president. he wanted to bid for greatness and by getting a grand bar iman. doing something bipartisan. he is born conciliators. that's who he is. the sad thing at the end of the day, the tragedy of barack obama is that he was a man who was
